Hello java-ranchers,

I have a problem and It'll be very nice if someone have and idea how to solve this problem.

I programmed a webapplication with tomcat (v. 6.x) on eclipse. Now I want to put the application on a Apache server of our firm.

But whe do it, jsp-code are still shown in the html-page. The most of my pages are jsp-pages and Apache webserver don't recognize them.

How can I make this possible?

Thanks a lot for any answer.

How did you hook up Tomcat to the Apache server? Apache httpd doesn't know the first thing about JSPs on its own.

Hi Gerry,

You will have to use mod_jk connector to connect Apache with your tomcat server. So that it can route the requests to Tomcat, which will be served by the Tomcat server, for instance your jsps will be served by Tomcat server.

For more details on how to connect Apache to tomcat using mod_jk module you can refer,

Hope it helps.
